The introduction of the 851 in 1987 instantly recreated Ducati's image and amazed testers with the power of its engine.
Constant improvements made it the premier 4-stroke bike of its time, demonstrating not just the styling of the Ducati brand, but its tremendous technical expertise as well.
The 851 S, an improvement on the original, became one of the most desirable bikes on the road.
